Taking the abilities J.S. Jackson has carefully crafted as a lyricist in Enation, this book of Mystical Poetry explores deep, emotional, and personal themes.    

Excerpt from 'Book of Solace and Madness': 

"I came from the womb of a shining poet, and 
the loins of a musical physician. I was brought 
up on visions of grace, and songs of mercy. 
Argument was fed to me for bread, and 
thought, for milk and honey. Preciousness, was 
hummed over my bed of waking dreams. And 
awareness was planted, in the soil of my heart. 
Beneath fabled skies, conviction caressed my 
senses in mystical awe, like the softness of a 
mother’s hand. Lion’s eyes were fixed into my 
scull, and the teeth of wolves were placed into 
my gums. I was given an eagle for a brother 
and a mare for a sister. Both guided me, 
through tunnels and streams of joy and bliss, 
bearing the burden of transient creatures. I 
missed you most, during the night. Lying on 
peddles of violet fascination, tears of Eden 
would swell to overflowing—as we rehearsed 
our coming death, through the discipline of 
    O Author of Beauty, you would visit me, with 
visions from within, of beating drums and 
tolling bells. And visions from without, of 
living effigies, wrapped in cloaks of flesh, 
plucking nylon strings, of blood and laughter. 
   Death, stands before me every hour, 
glimmering life into reflection. I welcome its 
shadow. For I need this wound, to separate the 
day from the night."
